Japan and the Dark Future of Nuclear Power

Give me Global Warming ANY DAY over Cesium-137, Iodine-131, and Strontium-90. Cesium-137 has a half-life of about 30.17 years And don’t get me started on Plutonium contamination. Plutonium-239, with a half-life of 24,100 years. The most common isotope formed in a typical nuclear reactor is the fissile Pu-239 isotope.
I’ve always been against nuclear power. Always thought: too dangerous. To vulnerable to terrorism. To costly if something goes wrong. No place to store the spent fuel. Power for a day maybe, but radiation for generations to come. Japan is just proving to the world that this is NUTS.
